First-ever Awesome Calgary Finalists!

Wow!  This really is "Good Friday".  

I'm thrilled to announce our Top4 finalists for the first ever Awesome Calgary $1000 grant for microbrilliance.  In no particular order:
  • Fire Tornado - Dean 
  • 100 Year Old Houses - Art 
  • Yes! - Paisley 
  • Meganopoly - J
Trusty Trustee Reg Tiangha took this pic of us counting out the loot!
Please join us on April 28th at 6pm at the gorgeous Endeavour Arts Gallery to see these 4 ideas "micro pitch" to us (WOW us in 90 seconds!)  ... and to misquote Donald Trump "someone is going home A WINNER!".  We will award the $1000 cash, on the spot, to the winner.   Videos of the Top4 pitches will be posted to this site after the awards.  

shhhhh ... we also have a few other surprises in store for the evening.  Pitches start at 6pm ...  come early to join in the fun! Special musical guest to be announced soon. 

Thanks for all the great submissions this month - it's a shame we can't award lots more grants.   Along with the Top4 we want to give kudos to a number of honourable mentions: 
  • Planet Tour - Daryl 
  • Community Books - Carolyn 
  • Test Drive a Sport - Linda 
  • Where are We Supposed to Go? - Jeremy
  • Bow to Bluff Poster - Tamara
Don't forget to get your submissions in for the May $1000 Grant - deadline is May 10th.   In the meantime - have an awesome weekend!
